Foundations Recovery Network
Foundations Recovery Network’s mission is to be the leader in evidence-based, integrated treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders through clinical services, education and research.
What makes the difference in recovery? How can one help a struggling person find his or her way to healing? Substance use and co-occurring mental health conditions provide a number of formidable obstacles that can keep individuals from living the healthy, happy lives that they deserve. What does it take to usher a person from the disease of addiction into long-term recovery?
At Foundations Recovery Network, we believe in providing evidence-based, integrated treatment and patient-centered care. We treat the whole person, mind, body and spirit. Because we treat both substance use and underlying mental health conditions, we are able to address the root causes of addiction and prepare individuals for a sustainable life in recovery.
